Do you want to know something shocking? Search Engine Land reports that 93% of online experiences begin with a search engine. (Alternate source:  Business 2 Community).

It is critical to optimize your website for search if you want people to experience and connect with your small business online.

With the advancement of technology and the refinement of algorithms, the search engine optimized techniques in 2015 may no longer be applicable now. Given certain search engine optimization (SEO) best practices remain unaltered, others continue to evolve and new ones are introduced into the mix. After all, internet years may be best thought of as in dog years. A year in human time is like seven years in internet time. Needless to say, the internet is fast, but time moves faster on it!

If you want to be found in Google searches and build your small business’s reputation and presence online, you must stay up with evolving SEO trends. Otherwise, you'll be left in the dust in the search engine results pages (SERPs), with your material getting old on Google's page 2. This is also known as where you hide the dead bodies.

According to a report by Matt Southern of Search Engine Journal, “Results on the second page of Google have a CTR of less than 1% for each position.”

Are you determined not to fall behind in the SEO game? If so, keep reading to learn about the top SEO trends of 2021 that will help your content stand out and rank higher in 2022.
